When master blender Willy Herrera joined Drew Estate in 2011, he was given a near impossible brief – create a cigar that is distinctively Nicaraguan yet retains all the old-school Cuban virtues. As former Drew Estate CEO Steve Saka puts it,
“We gave him no boundaries or limits. Willy then spent forever working on this first blend… drove me a little crazy, made a lot of bad blends along the way, but I think we overwhelmed him a bit – I don’t think he was prepared to have so many tobaccos to blend from, rather daunting… our man Nicholas [Mellilo] helped nudge him a little here and there and voila! Willy created something I consider great.”
The result is the Herrera Esteli Habano, rolled entubado style by a small team of select rollers whose only other task is producing the Liga Privada series. It uses an Ecuador Habano wrapper over a spicy Costa Rican Corojo binder and extensively aged Nicaraguan filler tobaccos from Estelí and Jalapa. The Herrera Esteli Habano is an instant classic. It’s also one of the finest medium-full-bodied cigars money can buy.
